Planning Collective Membership

Go from Overwhelmed Bride to Confident Fiance!

Getting engaged is such an exciting time, but no one talks about how lonely and stressful planning a wedding can be.

Use our exclusive PLANNING PATH to take you from feeling OVERWHELMED & INTIMIDATED, to SUPPORTED CONFIDENT that you’re not

missing a thing

What is a wedding planning membership? 

During the pandemic when weddings were postponed, I kept myself busy by offering virtual wedding planning help to couples that didn't have the benefit of working with a wedding planner to help them navigate the craziness.  During those sessions, I LOVED sharing the wedding planning tips and knowledge that I've gathered in the last 20 years of being a professional wedding planner. 

It occurred to me that even after weddings came back, so many couples don't have the opportunity to work with a professional planner because it's either out of their budget, or simply not a necessity.  But that doesn't mean that they don't deserve the same tips and knowledge that will help them enjoy the planning process.  

Enter the wedding Planning Collective Membership! 

Wedding Planning Blueprint Course

Designed to help you plan your wedding like a pro, in the WPB Course I take you through my exclusive PLANNING PATH, which was previously only available to our full service clients.   

Join me in my office as I guide you through from the very first step in planning your wedding, to the final checklists you'll need the week of the wedding.  Using short video lessons, the tips are super easy to navigate, and ensure that you have the support of a professional wedding planning during your journey. 

And unlike other wedding planning apps, this is NOT just a checklist of tasks, but rather full EXPLANATIONS as to the how, why, and maybe most importantly why NOT behind each step.  And some tasks will be easier for you than others, but I'll help you process the wedding planning details you’re not as excited about (aka - the things you've been putting off)

Find the full course breakdown here.  

I help stressed out brides get back to enjoying the wedding planning process again! 


I’ve been in the wedding industry for over 20 years, and I'm sure you can imagine the crazy things I've seen!


So much of what goes into planning a wedding is based on experience, which is exactly what most couples are missing.  But not everyone has the budget to be able to hire a full service planner to take over the planning or them.  


Now, I'm using my experience to help all couples, regardless of their location or budget, plan the wedding of their dreams, without breaking the bank (or their sanity). 

Don't let the overwhelm force you to toss the plans and head to Vegas.  You can do this, and I can't wait to help!
